Nicole Kidman in Talks to Join Colin Farrell in ‘Killing of a Sacred Deer’

Nicole Kidman is in talks to join Colin Farrell in “The Killing of a Sacred Deer,” the psychological thriller from “The Lobster” director Yorgos Lanthimos.

Variety first reported during the Cannes Film Festival last month that Farrell had been set to reunite with  Lanthimos in the Greek helmer’s latest project.

“The Killing of a Sacred Deer” is expected to begin shooting in August with Lanthimos re-teamed with co-writer Efthymis Filippou and producers Element Pictures and Film4. Hanway Films was shopping the title to foreign buyers in Cannes.

Farrell will play a successful surgeon who attempts unsuccessfully to integrate an increasingly sinister teenager into his family. Kidman will play Farrell’s wife.

A24 is the domestic distributor. Producers are Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe of Element Pictures.

The Lobster,” which won the Jury Prize at Cannes in 2015, has generated more than $5 million in limited release in a month for A24.

Kidman stars with Colin Firth in “Genius,” which Roadside Attractions released last weekend, and in the upcoming “Lion,” with Rooney Mara and Dev Patel. TWX is releasing “Lion” in November.

Kidman is repped by CAA, Media Talent Group and Shanahan Management.
